I am reading Radical Remission and I recommend this book for anyone going through cancer treatment; those who are newly diagnosed; those who are told that hospice is their only option, and just those wanting to prevent cancer.
I wrote in an earlier post that I looked for other cancer survivors when I was lucid enough to go online. I found a few and I followed their examples. Now there is a book that documents the lives of survivors (like me) who beat the odds. These survivors ( including myself) basically have the same nine key factors in common:
- Radical change in diet
- Took control of our health
- Followed our intuition
- Used herbs and supplements
- Released suppressed emotions
- Increased positive emotions
- Embraced social support
- Deepened spiritual connections
- Have strong reasons for living
There are basically two groups in this ten-year study: One group went the alternative therapy route, while the second (the group I am in) did conventional and complimentary therapy.
